Byron Shire Council wishes to advise geotechnical investigation works are scheduled to commence on Friday 28 April 2017 between the hours of 8am to 5pm, weather permitting.

The work zone is approximately 800m north of Upper Coopers Creek School. (See attached diagram). Upper Coopers creek road will be closed at the work zone from 8am to 5pm Friday 28/4/17.

Geotechnical investigations are planned to be undertaken through the existing pavement embankment to allow the examination of the ground profile at two landslip sites.

Geotechnical data obtained from the investigations will help facilitate landslip remediation design. These investigations will include the drilling of boreholes using a truck mounted drill rig positioned on the road immediately above each landslip site.

Please be advised that any residents wishing to travel via vehicle past the works site must do so before 8 AM and after 5 PM on 28 Friday 2017.  Once the drill rig is established, it can will be moved for extreme emergency incidents only i.e. Emergency Services.
